We are so glad that you will be joining our Campbellsville University (CU) community! Take a look at the information below and get ready to join us at CU!
Be sure to pay special attention to deadlines and the list of things to do before you arrive.
International Student Orientation (we call it CGE Compass) is scheduled for August 19, 2023.
*Athletes- Some athletes will arrive early for practice. If you are an athlete, contact your coach about your required arrival dates.
If you need to arrive the day before, we recommend that you stay at the Tru Hotel at the Louisville airport. We will meet students who stay overnight at the hotel after completing the airport pickup.
When you make your reservations, tell them that you are with the Campbellsville University group to get a discount on your room.
We have also prepared a welcome for you when you arrive on campus.
All students on the shuttle will be taken to the Student Activity Center, where you will meet CGE staff and Resident Directors who will help you find your dorm and give you important orientation information.
We know that some students will not be able to take the airport shuttle on the day they arrive or they will prefer to make other plans. Please use these resources if you need to find a hotel in the area, rent a car, or take a taxi.
